back from vacation

I’ve been in lovely Iowa City, Iowa for the past few days, more or less disconnected from the online world, although my hometown is now happily full of wifi hotspots, including a coffee shop and the Iowa City Public Library. (The latter was featured in the last issue of American Libraries for its architecture. I just like it because it has Time, Newsweek, and Life in bound editions back to about 1930 and lots of CDs. Oh, and books.)

I’ve got all kinds of goodies stored up to tell you about in the near future, but to tide you over, here’s an article from the Chronicle of Higher Education about why a PhD is not an MLIS.
